  • 8- to 12-ounce chicken breast or thigh
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white wine, mirin or sake
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried herbs (rosemary, tarragon, thyme and/or sage)
  • 2 tablespoons water


Wash chicken and remove skin; place in a bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and add to chicken. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes, turning chicken several times.

Steam chicken either on a plate in a bamboo steamer or place chicken in a heat-proof bowl inside a large pot, with water coming about halfway up the side of the bowl. Steam for about 20 minutes, until the juices run clear when the meat is pierced with a knife tip.

Serve with the cooking juices that accumulate in the bowl, over your favorite grain.
